Q: What would you give as a birthday gift to a fellow book lover? {FYI - My birthday is tomorrow!}

A: First off, Happy birthday Billy!! I hope you have the best birthday ever!

Secondly, to a fellow book lover friend, I have given Amazon gift cards. They get to choose what they want. Another great idea is a book pillow. You really don't know how much you need one, until you get one.

  7. I really enjoy Neil Gaiman's books. I haven't read Anansi Boys yet, however.

    Gift cards to a bookstore are the best. :-) I do love Amazon cards in particular. Although I rarely use them to buy gifts anymore. I tend to save them up until I get enough to buy something big that I need for the house.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  11. On the Book Blogger Hop YES to the book pillow!! I listed that one too.
    In addition to other things, I also said a heating pad. Hey, depending on how good the book is, my reading posture may be something even my 10 year-old would give the side eye too.

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
